(recommended) or place the camera on a stable, level surface and 
follow the steps below:
1
Select self-timer mode.
Press the release mode dial 
lock release and turn the 
release mode dial to 
E
.

Frame the photograph and focus.
In single-servo autofocus 
(pg. 62), photographs can

 Cover the Viewfinder
In exposure modes 
other than manual, 
cover the viewfinder 
with the supplied 
DK-5 eyepiece cap 
after focusing.
 
This 
prevents light 
entering via the 
viewfinder from 
interfering with exposure.
